  1. WHAT GO CAMPING!!!! Good because I wanted to go camping this summer too, so I will make sure and just drag you with me! :) and can't wait to cook with you :) and do all the other stuff! yay!! (wash hair in honey?? hu??)

    1. Haha, I've been convinced to try camping one time. ;) JUST ONE TIME!

      I won't ONLY wash my hair in honey. It's a homemade mixture that's supposed to make your hair super healthy and shiny. We'll see. :)

      AHHH only two more days and you'll be home and we can begin our bucket list!!

  2. You can't ride a bike?! I'm glad you're going to learn then; it's really fun. :) It's my main form of exercise when I do exercise, which is not very often unfortunately.

    I'm not so sure about washing hair with honey though...

    1. Some childhood skills I never learned... like whistling or riding a bike. I'm not sure why not! But I have to learn by next semester because I will need to ride a bike.

  3. Cute list!
    I have never been on your blog, but I just googled and it popped up. :)
    Thought I would stop by and say hi.
    So "hi."
    I hope you stop by my blog sometime.

  4. Cool blog. (: Paint fights are soooo much fun! I also wish I could play the ukelele. They're so happy and fun.

    If you need more ideas, I'd love it if you checked out my blog. Here are 50 more things you can add to your list. (:
